Wow what a week guys. Its taking me this long to just stop seeing the little gremlins from all the Mescal. Awsome job on the finish man.

Looks like we are going to Vegas for the Silver State 300 in April you guys should come out and pit for us and spread the bongo. Hey this is a chase race so I see a rental car rally also.

Statistics about the King of the Hammers 2011

Some interesting statistics about this year's KING OF THE HAMMERS 2011

Starters 1-24 did not advance on their starting position.
Dean Bulloch passed more people than anyone (76) to get to 20th place. Hussey passed the 2nd most (68) and didn't top 20. Shannon passed 61.
Ponce/Gutwillig TEAM MEXICO #4472 were the only team to start and end in the same position (spot #37.) Team Mexico had limited resources which included only 4 good 37" Sticky tires, no beadlocks, no gps, and no radio communications gear to report back to their pit area.

Starting position vs finish by groups
1-10 4 DNF, 6 top 20, 4 top 10
11-20 8 DNF, No top 20
21-30 6 DNF, 2 top 20
31-40 3 DNF, 4 top 20, 3 top 10 (Team Bongo Mexico started in this group)
41-50 4 DNF, 3 top 20, 2 top 10
51-60 5 DNF, 2 top 20
61-70 3 DNF, 2 top 20, (Shannon Campbell started in this group)
71-80 6 DNF
81-90 6 DNF
91-100 8 DNF, 1 top 20

The biggest cluster of DNFs was starting positions 12-23; Only 1 finished from that group and lost 24 positions.
Starting positions 64-95 had no top 20 finishers
Best finish by row goes to #18 Ferravanti (6) & Scherer (3), 2nd best was row #1 Adler (5) & Jordan (8)
14 rows both drivers didn't finish, 11 rows both drivers did finish
Rows 34 & 35 were the only subsequent rows to finish (Adams, Haines, Currie, Carter) but none of them finished in the top 20
Casie Currie barely made the cut off with only 1:39 min left before the cut off time of 9pm (you only get 14 hours to race). Casey started in 2 and ended up in 47th.
Brad Lovell started in 7th spot and did not finish, his brother Roger started 9th and finished 17th.


Top 20 finishers of 2011 KOH qualified through:
2 former winners
7 others from Top 20 of 2010

KOH 2011 Guest star International Teams
Ponce and Gutwillig from Team Mexico, Fabio Manno from Italy, Ben Napier from Australia, Ragnar Robertsson from Iceland, and Curtis Warner from Canada, and 2 other teams from Germany and Ireland but they did not show or either pass the first tech. KOH has 2 techs.
Only Team Australia and Mexico finished in the allowed time. Italy finished after the cut off.


Only 1 from the OG13, who could have also used alternate forms of entry
1 Sponsor Entry
5 from the Stampede
1 from the Grand Slam
3 LCQ'ers

For the finishers of 21st on:
4 more Top 20 of 2010
3 more Stampede
2 more OG13
2 Harlan qualifiers
1 RCQ'r
3 from SMORR
5 more LCQ'ers
1 International
1 more Grand Slam
and 5 that I'm not sure how they qualified

You need to be nuts to race the King of the Hammers

Last night we were talking about what one does when you have to take a whizz or a dump while racing, or even worse when its almost 12 hours its now dark and you start feeling like this:
